Big Bill Broonzy [1893-1958], was probably the most important Chicago blues artist in the Thirties and early Forties (that's before the period of "Chicago blues" represented by Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Little Walter, Howlin' Wolf a.o.). Not only did he record frequently under his own name, he also accompanied numerous other artists on their recordings, and he acted as talent scout for record companies. In the Fifties he was probably the first to bring the blues to European audiences.
